    Gasket Cutter.

    Back in the old days when I did refrigeration service, door gaskets didn't have magnetic strips. Door gaskets came in a roll and you would have to cut them to fit any door.

    To do this we had a tool called a "gasket cutter". It had 2 adjustable blades on it for adjusting the angle. It was a hand held tool.

    We have a crazy job where a gasket cutter would come in mighty handy. So I went on the net to try to find one. No dice.

    So I was wondering if #1,,, do any of you old timers remember such a tool? #2 does anyone know where I might locate one???

    I remember those. My father had one, but I'm sure it's long gone by now.

    Refrigeration Hardware Supply used to have them in their catalog, but they have apparently dropped it from their latest issue.

    One way to outthink people is to make them think you think. They'll think you're not really thinking what you're trying to get them to think you think...........

    Sarge, saw my post on the other channel and came up with this. It is made in England, apparently. They call them Gasket Shears Leave it to the British to screw up our language.

    From the description, it looks like a modern version of the old gasket cutter I once used.

    Actually, I think it's the other way around.

    Don't make fun of old gauges. I use an Imperial/Eastman manifold that has to be 40 + years old with late 80's vintage Marsh gauges. The hoses are new. I can still get parts for the manifold and the Marsh gauges are still available. I thought about digital but decided against it. I bought a new car instead.
    Signature on hold. Trying to find a real Jefferson quote I like. Others here have bogus Jefferson quotes too.

    You know that you can buy a new car that comes with digital gauges don't you?
